Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has held a meeting to discuss manager Louis van Gaal’s future at Old Trafford.
Speculation that United could sack Van Gaal has intensified after the club failed to make it out of the Champions League group stages and were beaten by newly promoted Bournemouth and Norwich City.
Fans are unhappy with Van Gaal due to the lack of exciting, attacking football on show, and the Dutchman admitted he was “worried” about his job after the 2-1 defeat to the Canaries on Saturday.
And according to The Sun, Woodward headed a meeting at the Red Devil’s London headquarters yesterday to discuss the 64-year-old’s future.
Reports have suggested United could be pressured into making a decision on whether to sack Van Gaal or not after Jose Mourinho became available, while Pep Guardiola is also a target after the Spaniard announced he will leave Bayern Munich in the summer.
It is also understood Sir Alex Ferguson has held talks with the club’s hierarchy to give his opinion on the matter.
